Regional Young CEOs & Founders Gather in Mbarara under Youth Start-up Academy Uganda


Young CEOs bring with them the novelty of new technology and the audacity of going “all-in”.

However, this energy comes bundled with inexperience. While some learn quickly and build well-founded organizations, many are unable to cope with the sudden slaughter of responsibilities and limelight. This is the root cause, businesses that rise too fast, often go through a period of redemption and transformation.

The young CEOs and Founders are meeting at HIVE COLAB in Mbarara under the initiative of the International Trade Centre and Korean SME that is implemented by Hive Colab in partnership with the National Information Technology Authority of Uganda.


The Youth Startup Academy Uganda (YSAU) is the best entrepreneurship program in Korea with more than 10 years of history and 2 Unicorn startups from alumni, which has opened its first overseas incubation hub in Uganda.

Under the close collaboration between the International Trade Center (ITC), the Korea SMEs and Startups Agency (KOSME), the National Information Technology Authority (NITA-U) and Hive Colab, the YSA Uganda project will provide comprehensive incubation and facility to 1,000 young entrepreneurs to generate the first Unicorn startup in Uganda.

Being a successful CEO requires a wide range of leadership skills. Visionary thinking, strategic planning, emotional intelligence, communication, decision-making, adaptability, and team building are all essential for leading a company to success. CEOs must continually develop and refine these skills, in order to stay ahead of the curve and navigate the challenges of today’s business environment.

By focusing on these key leadership skills, CEOs can create a strong and sustainable organization that delivers value to its customers, shareholders, and employees.

Youth Start-up Academy Uganda is here to nurture CEOs to walk the journey of business leadership.
